Md Ris, Nurfadhilah (2015) Improvement of work site control for storage area / Nurfadhilah Md Ris. [Student Project]


This project focuses on the improvement that can be implemented to increase the performance of the work site control for storage area at Autokeen Sdn Bhd (AKSB). The aim of this project is to create an effective system of handling the storage management for Work In Progress (WIP) part. In order to complete this project, First-in First-out principle must be applied. The calculation of stocks in the storage area is very important in order to implement this principle. The calculation that needs to be done is the min max control of the stock status. Besides, rack management also is very important so that the storage will be in good arrangement and easy to trace down the products. The idea to prepare the racking system for the WIP part will help in organizing the parts systematically. This racking system saved a lot space in storage area. The calculation on number of stock is significant before building up the racking that can fit for three days buffer stock. In storage system, the racking system is used to arrange the polyboxes which are used to store the parts. There are two designs of rack which used to store the Work-In-Progress (WIP) parts. The design is differ in term of the maximum number of the polyboxes that can fill the column. First design which have 11 columns and 8 racks. The minimum number polyboxes that can be filled in rack are three polyboxes. After the calculation had been made in order for the rack to hold three days buffer stock, there are three racks needed to store all the WIP parts. The second design has two racks with different size. First rack with 17 columns and eight rows to store Proton parts. The second rack with 15 columns and 8 rows to store Perodua and Honda
